Caught on Camera – Wilkes Barre Times-Leader

Sunday, May 28, 2017

It’s rare that a photo of a fish is submitted for Caught on Camera, but this week the subject represents a pretty unique catch. Walter Gulitus was fishing the Susquehanna River last week when he landed a fish that looked unlike anything he ever caught in the river. When Gulitus was fishing near the Apple Tree Boat Launch in Harding hoping to catch a few smallmouth bass, but never expecting…

The camera, unfortunately for us, never lies – The Sydney Morning Herald

Sunday, May 28, 2017

Have you ever been photographed simultaneously by more than 50 cameras? It’s only happened to me once, at the Logies, when I was a nominee, owing to some now-untraceable administrative error. And when (to be clear) I describe my own experience as “being photographed by more than 50 cameras”, what I actually mean is “being gesticulated at by 50 photographers to hurry up and get out of the way of…

NASA’s Moon Orbiter Camera Survived Meteoroid Hit – NDTV

Sunday, May 28, 2017

Washington:  The camera system aboard NASA’s Moon orbiting spacecraft survived a hit by a tiny meteoroid in 2014 which was travelling much faster than a speeding bullet, the US space agency said today. On October 13, 2014, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), which normally produces beautifully clear images of the lunar surface, captured an image that was wild and jittery. From the sudden and jagged pattern of the image,…

Strange Conversations from Working in a Camera Store – PetaPixel (blog)

Saturday, May 27, 2017

I’ve worked in a camera store now for about a year and a half, and I’ve been a photographer for about 7 years. I enjoy working in the camera shop, as it’s my one consistent form of income as a photographer. In this camera store we are all directly trained by the camera manufactures, meaning Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fujifilm and all the others come to our store and train us…

A Chipotle Mexican Grill in Texas is being accused of covering up the actions of a manager who reportedly hid a camera in the restaurant’s bathroom. According to a lawsuit filed this week in the District Court of Brazaria County, Texas, the plantiffs allege that store manager Joanny Castillo, 18, repeatedly installed a video-recording spy camera in the women’s bathroom area and, when informed of the Castillo’s actions, the restaurant’s corporate…

Mario Lee The Gionee S10 in four colors. Last week I teased a new phone with four camera from Gionee, and today the Chinese phonemaker has made it official with a launch event in Shanghai.

The 16-megapixel rear camera (aka the “main” camera) has an f/1.8 aperture, which means it…

AI device takes aim at the perfect camera shot – New Atlas

Saturday, May 27, 2017

The number of settings on a high-end DSLR or mirrorless camera can be truly overwhelming, even for experienced photographers. That’s why Montana-based software developer Ryan Stout created the Arsenal. It’s an electronic module that gets plugged into your camera, where it uses artificial intelligence to create the “perfect” shot. Once it’s mounted on the hot shoe, plugged in, and wirelessly fired up via an iOS/Android app, the Arsenal assesses the…

Reolink Keen review: Battery-powered camera offers wireless security for cheap – Macworld

Friday, May 26, 2017

I’ve reviewed several home security cameras over the years, and always grapple with where to mount them close to a required electrical outlet. After all, wires can be severed or simply unplugged, disabling a camera before it ever has a chance to catch a glimpse of potential intruders. Although Wi-Fi allows cameras to have one less tether, manufacturers mostly disregard the real elephant in the room—until now. The folks at…

Which smartphone has the best camera? – The Guardian

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Continuing the theme from last week, I need advice on replacing my Huawei smartphone, following an unfortunate incident involving a car door. My phone is also my camera, so my main criterion is that it will take good shots in most lights. The Huawei, while fine in other ways, fell short in the photography department. I’d be interested in recommendations at different price points. Alison Smartphone cameras are now amazingly…

The best free alternative to Adobe Lightroom 2017 – TechRadar

Thursday, May 25, 2017

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom has two main functions: processing images, and organizing them (through tags, naming, rating, and metadata). It’s hugely popular among professional and hobbyist photographers thanks to its ability to process photos in batches and optimize workflow, but it’s not the only option – there are several superb free alternatives that are almost as powerful. Like Lightroom, all the image editors we’ve featured here are capable of processing raw…
